what to do with thai herbs

  • 3

Made some thai this past weekend and now have a ton of leftover herbs (basil, mint, lemongrass, etc.).

Any smart suggestions on how to use them before they go bad?

  1. mint= lamb meatballs
    basil= marinara, pesto
    lemongrass= infuse into chicken stock for tom yum

    1. Do they freeze well?

        Lemongrass freezes ok, maybe try mincing it before you put it in to ice trays. Basil doesn't freeze well at all but you could make a pesto which will keep (unless it's Thai holy basil and then it might not taste so good in a pesto).

        Mint you could freeze in to ice cubes to use in drinks.
